Climate Change & Natural Disasters
- Mankind starts to look for causes in the patterns
- Sometimes we recognize patterns falsely
- Pos Hoc Fallacy
- Do we have a basis for saying that these recent hurricanes are the result of climate change?
- God’s judgement or human-caused climate change?
- Make sure that when you’re reading events, you don’t buy into the secular assumption of randomness
- History is governed by God.
- Amos: “If disaster befalls a city, have not I the Lord done it?”
- But this doesn’t mean that we know the meaning.
P.G. Wodehouse—Leave it to Psmith
- The best way to master metaphors is to read the masters. P.G. Wodehouse is a master of striking metaphors.
- Out of all his books, Leave it to Psmith is my favorite.
- All light comedies.
- You’re not reading Wodehouse for a gripping insight into the human condition. They are great vacation reads.
- At the same time, Wodehouse is truly gifted when it comes to metaphor
- Reading these books aught to make your day.
- Seems stronger than unrighteousness, but the same word
- Judas’ the betrayer
